My Approach to Tutoring
The great thing about working one-on-one or in small groups with students is the ability to tailor every lesson to what they need and how they learn. Every person will prefer to learn in different ways, and often that extra push or guidance from a mentor can be all it takes to help stay on track. Sometimes it's more helpful to spend significant time breaking down each concept, and yet other times practicing over and over again will be the best way to master a subject. There's no one right way to learn or to teach. I work with students to help understand how I can be the most useful to them, and will tailor my time with them accordingly.
I hope that I can show them that even the most difficult (or perhaps seemingly uninteresting) subjects can be enjoyable, and maybe even cool, once you get the hang of it. I'm there to make sure that when exam time comes around students feel prepared and confident, but also that they have an understanding of the material that will stay with them after the school day is over.
